2017 Cape Mentelle Chardonnay - 97 Points
"Hand picked, whole-bunch pressed, wild-fermented. Gleaming straw-green. It takes a millisecond for its flavour mass to reach every corner of the mouth. Has gained further complexiy since first tasted in Mar '19, with a twist of grapefruit zest joining white fleshed stone fruit".
2016 Cape Mentelle Two Vineyards Shiraz - 97 Points
"A blend of parcels from the Trinders Vineyard (great power and depth) and the Chapman Brook Vineyard (nuanced, fine, floral characters); 50-70 days on skins; 21 months in French (80%) and American (20%) oak, 50% new oak overall. A powerful, layered shiraz of great length and balance. The fruit flavours are in the black spectrum, the tannins firm but ripe".
2016 Cape Mentelle Cabernet Sauvignon - 98 Points
"It's all there, all laid out for you, blackcurrant/cassis fruit, spicy/earthy undertones and perfectly ripened tannins standing guard over the fruit. The oak is subtle, but has been carefully orchestrated".
